The clean beasts entered Noah’s ark in sevens, while the unclean beasts entered in twos, yet religion and the world always makes it two for each and every animal that entered Noah’s ark.
That means pigs (swine), rabbits, camels, moles, mice, lizards, cats, dogs, bears, lions, tigers, ostriches, storks, herons, bats, hawks, eagles, raptors, vultures, ducks, pigeons, hyenas, jackals, wolves, donkeys, horses, mules, etc would’ve entered the Ark in twos.
Sheep, cattle, goats, chickens, turkeys, antelope, reindeer, pheasants and gazelles would have entered the Ark in sevens.
All insects would’ve entered the ark in twos, except for locusts, grasshoppers and crickets would’ve entered the Ark in sevens.
And of course the fish, clean or unclean would’ve remained in the sea, their home turf 🙂
According to the Levitical Law, some animals weren’t created as food, but rather to clean up after others, like vultures eat dead, rotting meat along with hyenas, the same applies to the creatures who live on the bottom of the ocean.
Of course the Levitical Law no longer applies today, so all that God created is good for food in this current dispensation (except anything that is poisonous). People have differing tastes, so it’s up to them whether they want to eat lobster, dog, horse or swine.
1 Timothy 4:
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
People who read the Bible without taking note of the dispensational changes can and do get confused with respect to what they can or cannot eat – some people start off with Adam & Eve and think because they were herbivores, God intended for us to be herbivores today, but after the Great Flood God permitted Man to start eating meat – every moving thing.
Genesis 9:3 ~ Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
Later, another dispensational change took place when the Jews were sanctified (separated) and were told not to eat the same as the pagans who surrounded them did :
Read Leviticus 11.
So how come the Apostle Paul tells us today in 1 Timothy 4:4-5 that every creature of God is good?
Because there was another dispensational change.
The same applies to salvation.
In each dispensation God’s plan and purpose for Man is different, in other words God still wanted all men in every dispensation to be saved, but the Good News that He presented, which applied to them during the different dispensation wherein they lived wasn’t the same in each of those dispensation – the good news differed, like it does today – but mainline institutionalized Christianity cannot see that fact.
Our good news (gospel) for today isn’t the same as the good news God gave to Israel in times past (in order for them and those who prostelyzed) to be saved. Nor is the good news in the next dispensation the same as ours today.
Adam & Eve were given one command which they failed to see through – the dispensation of innocence ended abruptly with both being evicted from the Garden in sin.
What did Adam & Eve have to do in order to obey God and please Him?
Genesis 2:17 ~ But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
How did Adam & Eve die? They died spiritually, not physically.
What did Noah have to do in order to obey God and please Him?
Genesis 6:14 ~ Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
What did Abraham have to do in order to obey God and please Him?
Genesis 12:1 ~ Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
What do we have to do today in order to obey God and please Him?
1 Timothy 2:4 ~ Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
Ever wondered what God’s plan and purpose is for your life? It’s for you to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth – which means obeying the Apostle Paul’s gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, as well as his command in 2 Timothy 2:15.
2 Corinthians 6:2 ~ (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
The dispensation we are currently living in, the dispensation began with the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus, which has lasted almost 2000 years already. Biblical proof :
Ephesians 3:2 ~ If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
Romans 6:14 ~ For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
You have to decide whether you believe what is actually stated in the Bible, and not lies which men preach from behind a pulpit.
